Notes Chassidic philosophy teaches that goodness and Godliness are hidden in every Jew, in the simple man as well as in the scholar. Uplifted by melody, the Jew transcends his material limitations and reveals the complete good implanted in his soul. Chabad melody differs considerably from general Chassidic song. It is not only joyous and ecstatic; it is also reflective and mystical, with a pensive and yearning quality. The sixteen nigunim on this recording were sung by a group of Lubavitcher Yeshiva students and graduates, under the supervision of Rabbi S. Zalmanoff.
